wow, I am freaking out - no fiber friday for today yet?  I hope I did not just miss it and double post.

Here is what I have done the last week...

Taken with flash

No Flash

And here is what I have been dying all week- I just did some more today that I will post later, if I can get a decent photo of it.

yay, my first ever fibre friday! Here are some skeins I have spun so far:

And here is some alpaca I've done this week:

I've got some more black and white alpaca with bamboo, a really wild and messy 'safari' yarn and just off the wheel some white alpaca with bamboo. If it's ok I'll add some pics of these later on Smiley
I hope the images work...

What pretty colors!  Was the plain black hard to spin up?

I just dyed up some black superwash, and am spinning up some black regular wool with a little lime green mixed in.  I did some lime with black fibers in it and am going to make the alien scarf from StichNBitch Knitting book for my husband for his bday- hopefully.

Wow everything looks beautiful so far, and its only the first page! Caprig-those colors make me freakin drool...I only managed to do a single skein last night.  Its more of a concept piece I guess. I wanted to see if I could spin synthetic hair, cuz I have a bunch. So its some really soft wool I hand dyed, carded with all different kinds and colors of fake hair, plied with black thread with some wool lumps.
I was thinking of making a felted vase?

caprig - beautiful! I love the colors in the no flash version and also in all of that roving - wow! And snowberrylime - amazing first yarns. I love the colors and you did such a nice job of them.

I actually got to spin this week after a long time away. I just experimented with novelty yarns. The first one is all nubs and slubs. The second one has tinsel. The last one is crazy - made with recycled christmas stuff: garland, tinsel, broken fairy lights, fake snow (by the way - the "EcoSnow" is made from ingeo so you can spin it easily and it costs less than your usual sources)

SLickmariavic- I love that color combo!- by synthetic hair do you mean the type for dolls and wigs?  What a creative idea!

Knitwit- I am amazed at your creativity- what a cool way to use christmas stuff.  What is ecosnow?  I never have seen that.

You guys are amazing!  This is so inspirational.

I am getting such a thrill from seeing everyone's work!

Thanks for the feedback!
Some really beautiful yarns so far! Fibre fridays are one of the reasons I started spinning, lol, drooling every week over gorgeous yarns kind of has that affect on people... Cheesy
And Caprig, you already know how much I adore all these colours you dyed.... absolutely wonderful!

My first fiber friday! These skeins are hiding in the medicine cabinet in my house so my housemates don't find them- this fiber obsession is getting out of control:

the dark red is my favorite, it was so easy to spin and the color is really rich. it's a merino and some other basic wool blend, the yellow is merino, the tiny white is alpaca and wool 50/50 blend, and the teal and rose are cheap-o roving.

All the previous yarn is so fantastic! I especially love the dyed ones.
